Finnish Cruiser had electric black out
December 14, 2013
Our Cruising Ship Amorella got some electric failure , black out, so that it was not possible to steer it. But because the ship was just passing aan utterly narrow line between rocky areas with underwater stones also, and many mini-islands, the speed was very slow. The anchor was readily set, because there is deep streams between the islands, although there was not- Thank God, any curent storm for moment intervacting to the position of the ship. Of cause there were “land in sight over all” as somebody said. There are very many small islands, and as everybody know After the Icetime, the earth In Finland is still rising from the sea, so that the islands are getting larger, and rising from the sea have changing features when some tens of years have passed.
In some places the route of the ship is as narrow as a highway file to a car. Such kind of a situation does not tolerate any blackouts in the steering system, really. But now the ship is already in Mariehamn, safely, with help of two piloting ships.
